Awakening Soul’s Body: Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Work® & Dreamdancing® as Pathways to the Self

May 16, 2014


Pre-Conference Workshop

Imagination and Medicine Image

This is your body, your greatest gift, pregnant with wisdom you do not hear, grief you thought was forgotten, and joy you have never known.”

– Marion Woodman

Our bodies and dreams are our closest links to the unconscious, expressing the soul’s longing through image, gesture, and the music of our speech. Movement that emerges from a genuine source, when made conscious and integrated into lived experience, is by its very nature transformative. Like a compass, the embodied psyche guides us toward true North, where our life energy is directing us.

Our morning exploration engages essential elements in your dream through Dreamdancing®, an inner-directed movement process. With sensitive inner listening, gestures emerge from the nonverbal, emotional midbrain where images form, moving the dream’s message toward consciousness.

Our afternoon will explore ‘The Dance of 3” developed by Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms® approach.  This practice supports our capacity to be present, evoking deep respect and empathy for ourselves and others.  In the process, we may contact the foundations of the emotional, imaginal, relational and sacred dimensions of embodied life as they manifest in our work and in our daily lives.

No experience in dance is necessary. Please bring a dream you’d like to work with.
